This seems to work better than stitiching across, for some reason. It may take a bit of pratice to apply only a small bead of glue instead of a big glob.

Added note: This works best when you shorten a zipper from the bottom, and I generally do it on plastic coil or invisible zippers.

Sorry Phyllis, I hate it when I spell someone's name wrong!

Phillis, Are you shortening from the top or the bottom of the zipper? Is it a regular coil zipper?

Way cool idea!!! And here I only thought glue guns were useful for hems!! (But only when I've run out of staples...)
